Somewhat Sunny Sunday

North Wildwood - Christmas in July
Mornin'!  It's 31° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with Ms Sun already shining brightly with E-NE breezes at 6-8mph.  Outside has a layer of frost as the island's a bit on the crisp side this briny, Sunday morn. It's nice.  Expect a mostly sunny morning as clouds filter in by mid-day.  Temps will rise into the upper 40s, perhaps tapping 50° with E-SE breezes turning to S-SE then again from the South all at 8-15mph.  This afternoon will be mostly cloudy.  The evening will be cloudy with 60% chance of patchy drizzles as temps drop back just a bit into the mid-upper 40s with S-SE breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... rainy and windy with temps in the mid-50s.  And remember beginning tomorrow... the George Redding Bridge (the Rio Grande Ave. Bridge attaching Wildwood to the outside world) will be closed from 12/9-12/11 from 8PM to 6AM for those 3 nights.  There's a huge sewer project being completed at the intersection at Susquehanna and Rio Grande Aves as the other option for traversing on and off the island will be North Wildwood's bridge (causeway).

Cape May NJ
Mornin'!  It's 37° in Wildwood NJ.  It's crisp, cold, clear and starlit with light breezes out of the North at 8-10mph.  It feels like 27°.  It'll be mostly sunny today with temps in the low-40s and breezes out of the N-NW at 10-15mph feeling like the low-mid 30s.  Tonight... clear with temps in the mid-30s (feeling like the upper 20s) and breezes out of the N-NE at 6-9mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same but with some clouds in the mix along with those stiff sea breezes.  Monday looks like a rainy day.  Just another reminder... the George Redding Bridge (the Rio Grande Ave. Bridge attaching Wildwood to the outside world) will be closed from 12/9-12/11 from 8PM to 6AM for those 3 nights.  There's a huge sewer project being completed at the intersection at Susquehanna and Rio Grande Aves as the other option for traversing on and off the island will be North Wildwood's bridge (causeway).

TGIF


Mornin'!  It's 33° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with not a cloud in the sky.  It's calm with hardly a breeze.  It's crisp and cold with frost on the dune grasses and the fragrance of the sea in the cold morning air.  Ms Sun's on her way in about half an hour.  Unfortunately, clouds will be rolling in a little later this morning as it'll be a partly cloudy day with peeks of sun.  Breezes will commence a little later this morning as well as it'll be a blustery day with winds out of the S-SW at 15-25mph +gusting.  Temps will get up into the low-50s (it'll feel like the low-mid 40s) with the windchill.  Tonight... partly cloudy with some clearing (20% chance of a shower), temps in the low 40s and winds out of the W-NW at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny, not as breezy with a high of 40° and Sunday... mostly cloudy and temps in the mid-upper 40s.  15 days until the Winter Solstice!   There's not one but two Christmas Tree lighting ceremonies tonight.  North Wildwood's is at the Hereford Lighthouse Gazebo at 4:30-6:30 and Wildwood's is at the Convention Center at 6:30-8:30.
Oh... here's some other island news... The George Redding Bridge (the Rio Grande Ave. Bridge attaching Wildwood to the outside world) will be closed from 12/9-12/11 from 8PM to 6AM for those 3 days.  There's a huge sewer project being completed at the intersection at Susquehanna and Rio Grande Aves as the other option for traversing on and off the island will be North Wildwood's bridge (causeway). Just an FYI!

Gloomy Monday

Mornin'!  Happy Birthday to my son today this one's for you! It's 39° in Wildwood NJ.  Even with the thermometer showing 39°, it feels like 31° with the NW winds at 12-16mph.  We've got a raw windchill this morning as the clouds have completely covered the island this morning.  There's a 40% chance of rain showers this morning with overcast skies in the afternoon.  We might (pretty big "might") see breaks of clouds and peeks of sun by mid-day.  Those NW winds are here for a while though... at least until Wednesday morning.  Expect NW winds at 15-25mph +gusting today as temps rise up only a couple degrees but still feeling in the low-30s with that windchill.  Tonight... 50% chance of rain with temps in the mid-30s and NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy and very windy (NW 20-30mph +gusting).  It's a hunker down and turkey soup kind of day!  Oh, and here's hoping that the Winter Storm the philly and suburb areas are getting as I type isn't as bad as the newsmakers are reporting.  While I sit along the coast with just gray skies, the big City and their surrounding areas are getting pummeled with a winter storm (rain, sleet and snow)... 1"-4" inches of the white stuff expected with schools closed today!  Thankfully, not here.

December Commences With A Rainy, Raw Sunday!

Hereford Lighthouse, North Wildwood NJ
Mornin'! Welcome, December!  It's 46° in Wildwood NJ.  It's gray and damp with some light raindrops falling.  I wouldn't actually call it raining... it's more like lightly "spitting".  Breezes are very light out of the East at 3-5mph.  Expect rain (100% chance) today as it supposed to begin within an hour or so.  Three-quarters of an inch are possible today.  Temps will tap the 50° mark with SE winds at 15-20mph +gusting.  Tonight... rain likely before 8pm with temps in the low-40s.  Southerly winds will become West around midnight with those slightly gusty winds at 15-20mph with a 60% chance of rain.  Tomorrow... starts out dry but cloudy with more rain coming around dinner time.  Tuesday... Ms Sun checks back in.  The winds have no intention of checking out until maybe Wednesday though.  We're officially in the month of Winter which begins in 20 days!
